many thanks for sharing the informative post.
Pd-extended was built to be an easy-to-install and thorough assembly of available libraries, extensions, and documentation. Unfortunately it is no longer maintained. Say it again:
Pd-Extended Has Been Abandoned And Discontinued. The Last Release Is Several Years Old. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK (Or Rather Not)
Pd-extended has two main goals: provide a standard collection of libraries and distribute core modifications to Pd itself. Providing a package that includes many libraries not only means that they are easy to use, but also acts as a standard platform so that patches can be used across many computers easily. Pd-extended includes most of the libraries from the pure-data source code repository. It is generally the most complete assembly of all available libraries, extensions, and documentation.
In terms of modifications to the core, Pd-extended aims to feel like a native app on GNOME GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. It also includes a number of community-added features like experimental string support and a visual design meant to improve readability.
The aim is to keep it completely compatible with Pd-vanilla. That said, it is possible that incompatibilities will be introduced during the development process, these should be reported as bugs. Pd-vanilla is not always compatible with Pd-extended, though, since Pd-extended has some extra features with Pd-vanilla does not have.
